Hello... I'm in the midst of revamping my blog to make my life a little easier. So do not be alarmed as work is still under construction.

Review: Whisk Espresso Bar & Bake Shop

It was our first visit to Empire Shopping Gallery after a fab lunch in Klang lead by PureGlutton (will delve on that on a later post). Capt'n Hook decided to clock in to have an hour long massage which later on stretched to 2 hours! Well, if you have been to Empire Shopping, it's not a big mall and there's only so much of bookstore and Toys R Us to keep BoiBoi and myself occupied.

Once BoiBoi is satisfied playing with all the toys he could lay his hands on, we went down to LG level to check things out. We observed the tallest spiral slide in the country is taking shape which I understood it would have been opened by now. One slide will cost RM12!

I chanced upon Whisk Espresso Bar & Bake Shop (which has certainly been blogged to death by now) and decided to try the cakes out to see if it really lived up to all the hypes plus of course to kill some time. I'm very surprised to find the shop is rather narrow and have very few seats inside. It's small but cosy and I really loved the retro black and white floor tiles.



We picked a slice of Hummingbird Cake (RM11.90), a cup of hot jasmine tea for myself (RM5) and BoiBoi naturally zoomed in to a Hot Chocolate (RM9.50).


Essentially a Hummingbird Cake would have mashed bananas, crushed pineapples and chopped pecan in it. Since it's made using oil, it's a very moist cake frosted with cream cheese icing. The one we tasted at Whisk is moist and pretty good except that I find the frosting is meanly scant. I'm not big on frosting myself, hence you would have noticed the cupcakes or cakes I baked are usually void of frosting. I believe if one is to frost their cakes, there must be a 'just nice' proportion, not necessary thick. If you look at the pic, you could see the cake in between the patches of extremely thin layer of frosting.

There isn't any Red Velvet Cake that everyone raves about on that afternoon, perhaps another time then. Not big on macarons, I skipped that one.

Hmm...yep, that layer of frosting is rather miserable, I agree. I hv tried their Red Velvet - i found it quite dry and the red colour was really very artificially red!

I treid their mini macaroon vanilla flavour,and found it overly sweet. I would have cut the sugar down by 50%. The girl did ask me if that was my first time eating macaroon. I said Yes ;) But I dont believe macaroons are supposed to be so sweet. It's like you only taste white sugar in your throat. Correct me if Im wrong.

The maccarons are over priced and the shape is too small and not even consistent... sorrrry WHISK. Two dollars a pop but be warned it is not in the same size everytime...
